Your PopCrush-Approved Super Bowl Playlist: Jay Z, Queen + More
The wings have been sauced, the keg’s been procured and your family rec room is spilling over with novelty Broncos flags and/or Panthers streamers. But unless you want your Super Bowl 50 pre-game festivities to play out in silence (or worse: to the tune of your Uncle Jerry’s musings on the upcoming New Hampshire primaries), you’d be wise to consider some arena-worthy musical accompaniment.
If you haven’t landed a last-minute flight to San Francisco to see Denver square off against Carolina for yourself, PopCrush has arranged a collection of adrenal gland-squeezing tracks that’ll have you convinced you’re comfortably seated at the 50 yard line. Because nothing pairs better with the sound of crashing helmets or early-onset CTE than “My House” by Flo Rida or “Another One Bites The Dust” by Queen. GO FIGHT WIN.
We’ve scanned through pop, rap and rock archives to cement the ideal NFL party-playlist. Below, “Moment 4 Life” by Nicki Minaj and Drake and “Centuries” by Fall Out Boy live in perfect harmony; “Touchdown” by T.I. and “Kickstart My Heart” by Motley Crue play for the same team. All that’s missing is the siren sound of fan jeers — and surely you’ve got a supply.
